Calling all Gift-Wrappers---
How would you like to have some fun, in a festive atmosphere, while helping The Actors Studio of Newburyport and Joppa Dance Company? All you have to do is volunteer to gift-wrap presents in the Tannery Marketplace, outside of Jabberwocky Book Shop. All proceeds will benefit TASN and Joppa. This is an opportunity to have fun, bump into friends and get a first-hand look at the wonderful gift opportunities in The Tannery.
We are looking for volunteers to work in 3-hour shifts, but we'll take less time, if that's all you can do. Please click on Gift Wrapping to sign up for one shift or more!     Gift Wrapping
